Always nice when the flower that started you on a tangent in your life opens up for the season.
As promised...F. 'Richard Britten' alongside one of the wild types...I should note, this is not the John Day large form. Still look at the stem size for a good idea of the size difference..also the color on 'Richard Britten' is starting to orange a bit as a consequence of having been open for a week and a half.
Temps in the 50's and getting to be the time of year I most look forward to, getting to come home from work and spend an hour taking photographs in the greenhouse!
Big rain supposed to come this week to the valley..maybe flooding in the lowlands.
